In the months of February and March, we celebrate 5 birthdays (soon-to-be 6!) in David's family. Every year, we celebrate with a combined birthday extravaganza. This year, I had a lot of fun baking the cake: a six-layered rainbow cake to represent each of the six individuals that have February/March birthdays!

The cake started out simply enough: two boxes of white cake mix!
I separated the batter into six bowls and colored it! That was definitely the fun part. This would be a very fun project for teaching kids about mixing colors!
I baked each layer in a 9" pan; let it cool, and then wrapped it in plastic wrap and placed it in the freezer. This made icing the cake so much easier!

What a surprise to cut into...
I may or may not have eaten a piece for breakfast this morning....Happy Monday!
